Formula 1 will be coming to race at the Jeddah Corniche street circuit for the third and possibly the last time. This being due to the organisers conducting the race at a brand new circuit in Qiddiya. However, in the past two iterations of the event, Lewis Hamilton and Max Verstappen have been the stars of Arabia. The former won the inaugural Saudi Arabia GP while Max went on to beat Charles Leclerc to win the 2022 round by a very close margin.
